We pointed it out to its owner, who said he might never have seen it under there.

So my vote for the worst Titanium color is that coppery brown color.

And to the point, I have a Pro Valkyrie that flew really well for me, but I had to stop throwing it because it is a burnt orange/brown color that matches pine straw and the dirt of the ground, and I while I never lost it, I lost a lot of time searching for it...
Yeah I had a blue Champion Valkyrie the old JK version from late 2005 or early 2006 that turned a blue green color in my bag due to a Star Valkyrie right next to it, odd the Star Valkyrie never changed color. I had to take disc out of bag as it wing had Changed from a Valkyrie width to an Innova speed 7 width disc. Disc was hard to find.


I feel lucky that top pro players can use bad color discs as about 80% of the tournaments they play are ones with spotters on particular holes and have enough fans at watching in person that would help them out. so the top pro players do not have to use easy to find colors in all the discs they have.

It was probably hard to find cuz it was shrinking.

C'mon Jay. Maybe he took a road trip to Tatooine. Maybe he threw that 9 speed off the tee and after skipping off the sand dunes and settling next to the sarlac pit, which btw is a hazard, It changed it from a 9 speed to a 3 speed. It's possible. All I can say is that when I play Tatooine, and to a lesser extent Dantooine, I always have a spotter. Jawa's like to steal discs and will NEVER call you back. Sand people (politically correct) will just murder you. FWIW, I prefer Dantooine for more casual rounds.

But true, I was making a point to a guy while trying to get back on topic of touring pro players. At least getting closer back to topic I helped get off track with: What is the worst old style Titanium Pro plastic color?
